Announcement Changes to Security Bug Fix Policy

We are updating the Atlassian Security Bug Fix Policy. Changes will take effect across all Data Center products on March 15, 2024.

What’s changing?

Previously, we delivered bug fix releases for any supported Long Term Support release in accordance with the Atlassian Support End-of-Life Policy, and for all product versions that are no older than 6 months.

With our new policy, we will continue to deliver a bug fix release for any supported Long Term Support release in accordance with the Atlassian Support End-of-Life Policy, but we are updating our policy to only support the most recently shipped feature release.

In the event of a critical vulnerability, we will take all of the following steps:

  1. Ship a bug fix for the latest feature release of the product affected by the vulnerability.

  2. Ship a new feature release for the affected product according to the release schedule.

  3. Ship a bug fix release for all supported Long Term Support releases of the affected product, adhering to the Atlassian Support End of Life Policy.

We aim to develop the most effective methods for enhancing the security of our software and delivering updates faster and more frequently. When considering an upgrade, you can be sure that the latest feature release is the most secure and stable product version as it contains the most up-to-date security fixes and feature enhancements.

If you have any concerns or if you require clarification on any aspect of the updated bug fix policy, please do not hesitate to reach out to our support team.

Find more details of the new process at Announcement: Planned changes to the Security Bug Fix Policy.

Announcement Internal Bitbucket Data Center apps migrated to Atlassian REST v2

We’re working on migrating Bitbucket Data Center to Atlassian REST v2. Following industry standards, Atlassian REST v2 now uses the libraries Jersey 2.x and Jackson 2.x to eliminate security risks and reduce maintenance costs, while the user experience remains the same.

In preparation for moving to a more secure version of REST API, all classes in bitbucket-rest-api and bitbucket-rest-model have been deprecated. We also plan on exporting only necessary packages to external plugins and changing namespace prefixes. So when you migrate to REST v2, you’ll need to re-import product packages and refactor your code.

We’ll provide more guidelines for replacement classes and the migration path in the following months, giving you enough time to make all the necessary preparations on your side. Stay tuned!

9 January 2024
